There’s much controversy these days about the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the place where President Obama got much of his early experience and training. Supporters of ACORN plead that it does good work for the poor. Critics charge that it’s set up as a criminal enterprise. Lately, the critics have made headway and Congress has taken steps to deprive ACORN of Federal Funding. Several states around the country are investigating ACORN’s role in voter registration fraud. The US Census has decided not to have ACORN provide workers for the next national census. A memo by an attorney hired by ACORN to survey their operations and recommend improvements ID’d several areas where they could improve transparency, etc. The attorney said that if ACORN didn’t make the changes she recommended, someone else would do it for them. Apparently ACORN ignored the recommendations, and now others are making their lives very difficult. It couldn’t be happening to a more deserving bunch. To see the difference between what ACORN says it is and what it really is take a look at what real acorns can produce.
